Young people are our future and it is the role of the  Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) to make Northamptonshire a safe place for children and young people to live. Young people deserve to grow up in a place where they feel safe and protected and where they can develop and flourish. Early intervention is critical to ensuring everyone has the best opportunities to achieve their potential.

The Office of Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (OPFCC) is looking for talented and experienced Early Intervention and Prevention Practitioners to join the team. You will draw on the principles of integrated working and signs of safety, working creatively with partner agencies to establish and deliver effective support for children, young people and families in line with the stated objectives of the Prevention Strategy and ‘Early Help’ principles. You will provide initial direct support to families on a wide range of issues including parental conflict and domestic abuse. You will have experience of assessing vulnerability, exploitation and risk management.

You will be joining an established team of Early Intervention Practitioners who have extensive experience of holding a case load with a variety of presenting issues. You will have the ability to engage people of all ages who are in crisis and use this as a teachable moment to empower change. You will have proven experience of working in a range of settings with experience within the domestic abuse field and with young people who are often hard to engage. You will have a can-do attitude and a passion for initiating positive outcomes for people.

OPFCC staff are home based but can work from Police and partner sites across the county.

This is a politically restricted post and requires successful completion of Police vetting.
